Hello,

I advice you reset the unit, you can check the user manual as regards resetting the unit, if after resetting, the problem still persist, follow the below,
Step OneRemove the front grill. Pry it off with a putty knife if it's held by clips, or use a screwdriver if it is screwed in place. 2Step TwoUnplug the air conditioner, slide it out of the window cabinet and set it on a sturdy table. You may need a helper to move the air conditioner if it's heavy. 3Step ThreeLocate the mesh filter. It covers the radiator-like fins on the machine's evaporator coils. 4Step FourRemove the filter, and wash it and the grill in a mixture of warm, soapy water and bleach--this will remove any mold. Shake out the excess water and set the filter and grill in your dish drain to dry. 5Step FiveVacuum the evaporator coils thoroughly, using a vacuum with brush attachment. Remove any stubborn dirt with a plastic scrub brush. 6Step SixInspect the fins on the coils. If any fins are bent or flattened, buy a fin comb from an appliance store and run the comb up or down the fins to straighten them. 7Step SevenTurn the air conditioner around so the back is facing you. You will see a second set of coils--the machine's condenser coils. 8Step EightVacuum these coils thoroughly, using the vacuum and brush attachment. Remove any stubborn dirt with a plastic scrub brush. 9Step NineInspect the fins on the condenser coils, and if any are bent, use the fin comb to straighten them. 10Step TenRemove any dirt or lint from inside the unit, using the vacuum and crevice attachment. Make sure you clean the fan blades, too, using the vacuum and brush attachment. 11Step Eleven Put the air conditioner back into the window cabinet. 12Step Twelve Reinstall the filter and front grill, and plug in the machine.

Take care.

    Sorry I didn't state this earlier, but it is a central air conditioning unit. The therostat was the one inside the house, The unit is outside.

Why won't thermostat turn on after I changed the batteries?




I think you may have the model # incorrect, However if you have a thermostat as in the type that are hand held, polarity of the batteries is the 1st thing I would check, then test them for proper voltage, corrosion will often interrupt that small of a voltage, clean the terminals and test it .




A wall mounted like a central HVAC system typically will not require batteries to operate, this is for memory and they will work fine even if no batteries are installed, however there are battery powered stats too, meaning non parasitic type that not powered by the transformer in the air handler.
I will include a basic drawing of a residential HVAC thermostat to show you how the 24 volts powers most thermostats.

Honeywell ct3200 thermostat won't turn on


DON'T BUY A NEW ONE JUST YET! IF THE BATTERIES DIED & THERMOSTA LOST POWER, IT MAY HAVE LOST IT'S MEMORY. IT MOST LIKELY WENT BACK TO FACTORY DEFAULT SETTINGS, & NEEDS TO BE RE-PROGRAMMED THROUGH THE INSTALLER SET-UP MENU. HOPEFULLY YOU HAVE THE PAPERWORK FOR THE THERMOSTAT STILL & CAN POSSIBLY DO THE SET-UP YOURSELF. IT SHOULD HAVE STEP BY STEP INSTRUCTIONS FOR THIS IN THE INSTALLATION GUIDE (NOT THE OWNERS MANUAL)

I tried to turn on my air coditioning today for the first time this year and my Totaline Themostat P474-1050 won't turn on. Worked fine during the winter and last summer.


the thermostat is powered by the unit or batteries if batteries they may be dead if the unit you need to check fuses outside at unit or reset breaker outside depending on age of installation

I turned my ac off yesterday. I turned it back on tonight and it would not turn on. I noticed it was flashing (Change batteries) so I put new ones in. I waited till the cool on stopped flashing and it...


Hi, there is nothing more aggravating than having your household appliances not work.
Like a computer, the "thermostat" (it holds the batteries) retains the information you program (maybe the technician) to set the temperature controls.
The highs and lows can normally be bypassed with the push of a button.
Removing the batteries clears the memory. (Volatile memory).
When this happens, you must reprogram the thermostat so it knows what settings to operate at.
Can you get the instructions on how to program the thermostat? The instructions are usually on a paper on the thermostat lid.

(when changing batteries, remove one battery, then put a new one in its place before removing the next one. This keep some power to prevent the settings from being cleared.

The outside unit is not working on my Heil Air conditioner


The attic fan is not a part of your a/c system, and you should not run it while you are running the a/c. If you are currently using the attic fan, it is possible that someone wired it so that the a/c won't turn on while the attic fan is on. Otherwise if the thermostat is set below room temp, and says it is calling for cool, then the problem is most likely coming from an issue at the outside unit itself. Make sure to check your fuses, at the fuse panel and outside breaker. Hope this helps

FYI.. the only part of the system that might use batteries is the thermostat.
